Uj:06lES ON "HER CHARACTER
Rev. A. A. 3CorrisoB,.IleT. Alexander
Blackburn and Judge George' H.
Williams Make Estimates of Her
Worth as Woman, and Queen.
Portland paid Its tribute of loving re
membrance of the late Queen Victoria by
on Jmpressive and grand memorial serv
ice, yesterday afternoon, at the Armory.
About 4500 people were inside the build
ing, and many were turned away for lack
of room. ' t
British and American flags were twined
ioffelher, and the central thought, of,, the
cosmopolitan audience was that In mourn
ing the death of Victoria the Good they
fevered a woman who is Queen In the'
hearts of the English-speaking race. "God
Save the King" was sung with a swing1
and a vigor that was surprising, and ap
propriately enough the theme changed to
the verse of the American National hymn
commencing "My County, TIs of Thee."
The volume of over 4000 voices joining in
one common melody was like an ocean
breaking on a rocky shore. No applause
followed the delivery of any of the ad
dresses, and the attitude of the audience
was that of quiet and absorbed attention.
Many women were there, mostly dressed
in somber colors, and altogether if was
one of the finest and most representative
audience that Portland has produced. The
hall was tastefuly draped in black and
purple the mourning colors of the Brit
ish royal family. At first, when the doors
were opened about two hours before the
service began, the atmosphere was chilly.
Gradually, the audience began to spread
over the sawdust-covered tio'br, and at
:3Q, when, the Armory was thrown open
lo the general public, the seatfe were not
long unoccupied. Then the Portland
Symphony Orchestra began a grand, melo
dious march from "Tannhauser," just as
the sunlight began to stream through the
windows. The solemn, cathedral-like
themp of Handel's "Largo" followed. By
this time It was 3 o'clock, and every seat
in the big building was fllled, and peo-,
pie were standing in the passage-way in
the galleries- A perfect sea of faces
turned toward the platform, at Rev. Dr.
A. A. Morrison, the musical director,
started the orchestra playing the proces
sional hymn, "Peace, perfect Peace, in
This Dark World of Sin," and suddenly
far away at the other end of the building,
stole the clear, sweet voices of the boy
choristers. Down the aisle they came, In
surplice and cassock, preceded by a cross-
bearer, and as If moved by one impulse,
theaudlence arose, composed as lt was of
different denominations of religious faith.
Tlie surpliced choristers numbered about
SO in all, 'and'ilent a picturesque effect to
the spectaclQTlye clergymen of the Prot
estant EplscopaTChurch brought up the
rear of the procession.

that he may always incline to thy will

The first verse was sung pianissimo,
and then the inelody was taken up
utrongly by the brass Instruments. The
result was that, the audience sang the
air, jn unison, the whole creating a grand
musical finale, in which emotion was the

"The services you will have on this

which will be used when her body is to

Will be those of the Book of Common

to emphasize at such a time than this
yery thought that these earthly honors
and distinctions that men and women
now so covet and -toll and strive for,
are all as short-lived as the fading flow
ers of nature, and that Queens and
courtiers, the servant and the slave, go
down to the grave in one common rank,
.to meet the honors and rewards, tho
glory or the shame of the future life,
according to the deeds done in the body,
whether in the palace of tlie King, or

"It is a matter of special interest to
me to know that the name of this gpod

the name of our British friends with

end in entire harmony with the life of
beneficence of their gracious- Queen,
whose memory they now desire to honor.

inspire all those who share in lt with a
deeper devotion to those Christian -principles
which were the foundation. of this
good Queen's character, 'and the grace

"All our thoughts today are about the

marked an epoch which gave rise to
gratitude, sorrow and hope, to gracious

POLICEMAN DISCOVERED PLOT
and May Postpone Wreeddng: JF"eat
ore of Topeka Crusade-Mrs. Na
tion Received Contributions
KANSAS CTJET Mo., Feb. 3 A special
to the Times from Topeka, Kan., says:
Policeman Luster has reported to City
Marshal Stahl a plot on the part of the
liquor men ,to tar and feather Mrs. Na
tion, the joint-smasher. Marshal Stahl
Is making an Investigation.
The report has frightened Mrs. Nation
and her sister crusaders, but they declare
that they will continue the work of des
troying the "murder shops". They met
at 9 o'clock this mornfpg at Mrs. Nation's
room and held a session of prayer, asking
the Lord to protect them from bodily
harm in the discharge of what they term
ed their duty to the community.
Mrs. Nation braved the storm today and
made three temperance speeches, at tho
Wesleyan Methodist church In the fore
noon, at the Christian church In the after
noon, and at the Lowman Hill Methodist
church in the evening.
A recruiting office for the Topeka brig
ade, Kansas division, Carrie Nation's
army, has been opened. About 300 "sol
diers" have signed the roll, mostly wo
men. The programme of the defendants
is to march down Kansas avenue at 2 P.
M. tomorrow with drums beating and
flags flying and hold prayer meetings in
front o f every joint. Mrs. Nation says
that it was the intention of the home de
fenders to smash every joint tomorrow,
but this feature of the crusade may be
postponed for a day to enable the secret
service agents to Inquire into the story
that armed men are guarding the Joints.
Mrs. Nation says she don't mind a shot
gun, but she don't want to lead other
women to their deaths.
It Is said that Mrs. Nation receiver
more mall than any bank In Topeka. Many
of the letters contain money, and it Is
said that she already has put aside 300 to
help carry on the liquor war here.

Several Lawyers Who Misled Them
May be Prosecuted.
MUSKOGEE, L T., Feb. 3. Chltto Har
jo, or "Crazy Snake," the leader of the
warring Creek Indians, and 17 of tho
minor leaders of that tribe, have been
landed In the federal jail here, where
ithey-wili be. held pending Jtrialcfor trea
son. The Indians were brought here from
teenrieta under escort of Troop A, Eighth
Cavalry, and United States Marshal Ben
nett and his posse.
It Is stated that certain attorneys, who.
It is asserted here, misled the Indians
may be prosecuted. Marshal Bennett
states that while most of the Indians are
In hiding, some are still trying to hold
meetings. A posse will be sent tomorrow
to arrest Chief Lotah Mekko, tho real
chief of the Creeks.
When placed In prison here, Harjo and
his followers were searched, fumigated,
their shackles removed and all placed In
a large cell. A newspaper correspondent,
with the assistance of an interpreter, had
an interview with Crazy Snake, who said
that he saw no reason for arrest and felt
confident when the Indians were given a
trial before the Great White Fathers'
court, that they would be released. Ha
said they were acting In good faith and
had papers from Washington that gave
them the right to establish their old gov
ernment. Aa. to all tho talk of killing whites he
said Itwas never their Intention, and they
expected only to treat and act with their
own people, and in so doing expected
finally; to get all whites out. He also said
that the "Great Spirit" would see that
they got justice, even "though their white
fathers in Washington, and the oil syndi
cates, were trying to rob them of their
once happy hunting brounds."
